5* visitor attraction 

With today’s deal you'll receive two adult tickets or a family ticket for up to six to Balmoral Castle. 

You’ll enjoy access to the estate’s extensive formal and vegetable gardens, and visit the castle’s unique ballroom where you can see objects from Queen Victoria’s time at Balmoral. Queen Victoria built Balmoral, and this year would be the 200th anniversary of her birth with this exciting exhibition. You can explore the management of this 50,000 acre estate as well as the unique wildlife, landscapes and activities.

At the beginning of the tour you’ll be given an audio handset so you can walk around at your own pace, whilst learning all about the history of this magnificent estate. And if all that walking works up an appetite, you can visit the licensed café located in The Pipers Hall where they serve a locally-sourced menu, ice creams and refreshing drinks.  

Royal abode 

Set amongst the magnificent scenery of Royal Deeside, in the shadows of the Lochnagar mountain, Balmoral was purchased by Prince Albert in 1852 for Queen Victoria. It has been a favourite holiday home to the royal family ever since, with the queen spending ten weeks at the castle each year, longer than she spends at any other residence!

Fantastic reviews on TripAdvisor

"We had such a lovely visit to Balmoral Castle. The audio guides were very nice to have and we enjoyed walking the grounds, even as it began to snow! I loved the greenhouses and the gift shop was great. We bought a few things, had a cup of tea, and enjoyed the view of the snow coming down."

"We very much enjoyed our visit to Balmoral Castle. The audio tour was informative and the equipment easy to use. We were able to wander around at our leisure and although there were many people about it was not too crowded. A must see when visiting Royal Deeside."

"Great visit, charming castle, superb scenery and a lovely personal exhibition in the ballroom. Would highly recommend visiting."
